Heidi Klum has blunt response when asked if she feels the age of husband Tom Kaulitz's mom

There's a 16-year age difference between them

Heidi Klum has opened up about her feelings on the age difference between herself and her husband Tom Kaulitz.

The famous model is 50 while her husband is 33 so there's over 16 years between them, but it doesn't seem to bother the couple all that much considering they're together.

However, it's something Klum keeps getting asked and her fans brought it up recently when she hosted a Q&A with them on Instagram.

She was on Instagram Live when one of her fans asked her: "Don’t you feel that you’re in the age of Tom’s mom or age doesn’t really matter?"

Klum's response was pretty blunt and made it clear it didn't matter to her, saying: "I honestly only feel that way when people point it out to me."

She's been adamant that the age difference has never really been a problem for her, telling InStyle in 2018 when Kaulitz was her boyfriend and not husband that it was her followers who kept bringing it up.

Heidi Klum and husband Tom Kaulitz have been married since 2019.

She said she was being 'reminded more about my age by people other than myself' and that it was the only time she felt like 'age seems to be shoved in my face'.

Klum has in the past joked (at least we hope she's joking) that her husband's youth brings some unexpected benefits.

More specifically, she once said that she drinks his blood to help keep herself looking young and we are really sure that she's not serious about that.

Worryingly, some celebrity couples don't seem to be joking when they talk about that sort of thing.

Does she look like she's bothered about their age difference?

Earlier this year the German-American model attracted some backlash after posing in lingerie with her daughter, though since it's not the first time they've done it Klum didn't seem bothered.

Some people blasted it as 'weird' but Klum said it was done to 'celebrate women' and show 'the love and support between a mother and her daughter'.

Far better received fashion-wise was Klum's iconic worm costume for Halloween, with her saying that the frankly terrifying outfit had taken a couple of years to really put together.

It was arguably part of a couple's costume with Kaulitz, who dressed as a fisherman that could have used the worm as bait for his rod if it wasn't human sized.

You might reckon that being cocooned in a giant worm costume would impede one's mobility somewhat and you'd be absolutely right but Klum still managed to break out a few moves on the dance floor.
